Dairy People Factfinder
Above: The Dairy People Factfinder is compendium of facts and figures about the people in the industry for policy makers and program designers
Client: Dairy Australia
When: 2011 & 2013
Responsibilities: Collate the facts on the people in dairy
The need: Building a better understanding of the factors that influence workforce issues in regions – such as unemployment levels, demographics, regional wealth and the availability of training and services – was a main driver for the development of the Dairy People Factfinder.
What we did: The Harris Park Group led The People in Dairy working group responsible for producing the first Dairy People Factfinder in 2011 and a Second Edition in 2013. Longitudinal data analyses of ABS Census data and Dairy Australia’s National Dairy Farmer Survey provided valuable insights into change over time. The working group also created a specification for obtaining a dairy-specific dataset from the ABS Census.
